Facility 2 - Beacon evolved from Stuart Elliott’s exhibition The Facility, first shown at the 2012 Melbourne Art Fair. The series began as a building glimpsed whilst driving. It lingered in Elliott’s memory so he travelled back to view the site once again. The building was gone. He tried to recreate it in models and paintings, to remember its form and guess its purpose. Facility 2 - Beacon continues his investigations. The function of the facility remains ambiguous. Succulent plant forms occupy some of the buildings and grounds with a mysterious presence - are they the result of man’s interference genetic engineering? Are they sentient?
